Plantronics launches the Calistro Pro Series multi-function home phone
Plantronics has launched the Calisto Pro Series, a revolutionary home phone with a multi-function Bluetooth headset that they are aiming at home professionals.
The Calisto Pro's design and hands-free capabilities is said to introduce an entirely new way to manage landline, mobile and VoIP conversations.
The Plantronics Calisto Pro features both a landline handset and multi-function Bluetooth headset in one charging base.
The headset lets users switch between landline, mobile phone and VoIP calls at the touch of a button.
The handset is built on digitally encrypted, voice-dedicated DECT 6.0 technology which claims to provide exceptional audio clarity and performance that is free from interference with other home devices, such as Wi-Fi and microwaves.
It provides up to 300 feet of roaming range, a built-in speakerphone and flip-up waist clip for on-the-go dialing and Caller ID viewing.
The headset combines a noise-canceling microphone and an extended boom to greatly reduce background noise.
The headset can be connected to both the handset and a mobile phone to easily answer both landline and mobile calls.
The Calisto Pro headset can also be used with Bluetooth mobile phones while on the road, and then it will automatically reconnect with the home phone back in the house.
The Calisto Pro includes a USB port for PC connection. Skype and Yahoo Voice calls are transferred to the Calisto Pro headset at the touch of a button.
Plantronics Calisto Pro will be $279.95 and available in September in the States, no word on when this three-in-one wonder will be on sale in the UK.
